Weekends at Frederiksborg Castle
From Easter until mid-October the museum offers free guided tours every Saturday and Sunday at 11.30. On the tour you will visit the most spectacular rooms and learn about Danish history and the dramatic history of Frederiksborg Castle.
In the museum's beautiful rooms, you are welcomed by the Castle Hosts. The Castle Hosts are wearing costumes which have a connection to the museum's collection. The costumes are made especially for the museum, and they are created after portraits exhibited at the museum. All the Castle Hosts study history or art history at the university, and the museum's guests can ask them all sorts of questions in relation to the museum, the costume or the portrait, or you can have a photograph taken with them.
The Museum has a whole department especially for the children called "Danish History for Children" in the old wine cellar of the castle. Here you can explore the museum's exhibition for children "Christian the Fourth - child and king" that tells the story of this famous king of Denmark focusing on his childhood. Also, the youngest can write with feather and ink, colour drawings or dress up in one of the beautiful renaissance gowns for children especially made for The Museum of National History. The children's department is open in the weekends from 10.00-16.30.
